 About the Farm

Tagge’s Famous Fruit and Veggie Farms has been farming for 19 years. They grow on 150 acres in Box Elder and Davis Counties, with orchards in Perry and Willard, corn in Corrinne, new certified organic raspberries in Huntsville as well as row crops.

Thayne and Cari Tagge bought their first orchard from Paul Sumida in Perry, Utah. Paul helped Thayne learn to farm the first year. Since then Thayne has learned from other farmers and attends Ag Shows in California to be up to date with new trees and technology.

Thayne was the first farmer in Brigham City to convert to drip irrigation. He has since has put in 9 drip irrigations for other farmers in their orchards.

Tagge’s Famous Fruit and Veggie farms is the only farm in Utah that is certified organic on any of their fruit.
